4.4%. Served on-draught into a 5 oz taster glass at Wynkoop. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours no real head at all - just a beige floater. Body colour is a clear copper-amber. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Light chili peppers. Clean barley. Little heat. Seems harmless. A mild strength aroma.

T: Some chili notes. No heat or spice. The foundation is comprised of just simple clean barley. Simple and somewhat bland, but pleasant to drink. No complexity or subtlety here. Kind of boring. No yeast character or alcohol comes through.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Adequately carbonated. Suits the flavour profile fairly well. Too smooth and wet.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. I might have it again if I'm in the mood for a chili beer. A decent little brew from Wynkoop, albeit a mild one for the style.

Ordered on tap at the Wynkoop Brewery in Denver. Usually I'm not a fan of chili beers, although this one worked for me. Poured a pale yellow with a greenish tint. Slightly cloudy. Very small bubbles of carbonation. White head. As expected, the smell and taste of green chilis dominated. Hard to taste the malt or hops in it. The chilis lingered a bit, although they weren't overly hot - they didn't affect the mouthfeel at all. Although the strong chili flavor made for tough drinkability. Their take on the style seemed good, although I personally don't reach for chili beers.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Ordered one of these at Wynkoop as it was on Westword's 50 Colorado Beers to Try Before you Die List.

A - The beer arrived a vivid golden color with a thin white head and noticeable lacing.

S - Imagine you're at a Farmer's Market right next to the guy roasting the chili's. Immense chili aroma that's so potent you can't get anything else through.

T/M - The beer starts out light and crisp with a light malty character but quickly transitions to the chili flavor. It's not a spicy jalapenos flavor more of a roasted chili. The beer finishes crisp and smooth with the chili flavor lingering. It is not overly carbonated and is surprisingly light.

D - I was very excited about the beer at the beginning of the pint, towards the end I was ready for it to go away.

Overall, I am glad to have tried it as it's one of only a handful of chili beers I've had. However, I won't be going back for another.

Serving type: on-tap

3.23/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: clear amber/golden, half finger head

S: chili pepper but light

T: malt and chili pepper mix throughout the experience

M: oily, medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: interesting how many of their beers look alike. This one is a little over powering with the chili, not too many other flavors outside of chili pepper.
